    Default BBC Stuff - guidance on interest

    Folks,

    Before I go to all the the trouble of photographing, testing and listing my BBC stuff which is in the loft I'm purely just trying to gauge interest.

    I do have a price in mind for everything but before I make the effort could anyone who might be interested just say "yep" or "nope" to let me gauge interest levels so I don't waste valuable time please?

    Essentially I have 3 or 4 BBC Micro's in various conditions. I think one or two have School markings on them and I think one or two are Master systems. I also have one CUB monitor and a two, maybe three floppy drive systems (I think one or two are double drive systems).

    Probably also have some floppy disks and other bits and bobs but I really don't want to make the effort if no-one is interested and I really don't want to do the evilBay thing as it's just not worth it for the return as I'm sure you all agree.

    Anyhoo - just trying to quantify interest - nothing more.

    Cheers

    John

    LOL - I'll take that as a yes then Merly, would you also be so kind as to move this into the Acorn area as I guess it should be there instead of here?

    Hi

    I'd be interested in the cub monitor (depends a little on the exact model and inputs though)

    but I'd definitely be interested!

    best, Iain

    I've been wanting a BBC Master for a long while. I would be very interested in one of them.

    Thank goodness, was beginning to wonder if I'd get any more hardware.

    Definitely want the CUB monitor, if you can post it within the UK to my friend. Otherwise a pair of Master/Model B's, ideally with econet.

    Also interested in the various bits and pieces and software.

    Looks like enough interest has been gauged, so this thread has served its purpose.
